Those of us in the pro-life movement were (cautiously) thrilled this week at the escape of Chen Guangcheng from house prison in China. I say “cautiously” because now his family is in danger of being taken into WORSE captivity once he escaped. Even Obama hasn’t reached this level of thuggery although there are signs he has been on the fringes of it.
Let’s not forget Obama/Hillary’s statement in 2009 when she publicly declared that the Obama administration would not let U.S. concerns about China’s human rights record interfere with cooperation ‘on the global economic crisis [and] the global climate change crisis.’ ” Broken WaPo clock Rubin accidently points out truth that Romney has been incoherent since an original white paper challenge the administrations communist corruption for cash stance.
Not only does it seem that the administration has gotten worse by denying a Chinese defector safety, the demonic practices of the Chinese communists hasn’t stopped.
Gugangcheng is the blind activist who has embarrassed the Chinese government by bringing light to the abuse of women, families and forced abortions. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers reminds us:
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 29, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the astonishment surrounding Chen Guangcheng's extraordinary escape from house arrest, let us not forget why he was arrested: in 2006 Chen exposed the Chinese government's systematic, massive use of forced abortion and involuntary sterilization to enforce its "One Child Policy." WRWF obtained a copy of Chen's field notes and we released the first English translation of these notes at a Congressional Hearing on December 6, 2011. You can read The Chen Guangcheng Report here.
A member of Chen's team, human rights attorney Teng Biao, drafted this 2005 investigative report into coercive family planning in Linyi City, Shandong Province. The report contains extensive witness statements from cases Chen and his team were investigating before Chen was jailed. In the report are detailed accounts regarding:
- a woman forcibly aborted and sterilized at seven months;
- villagers sleeping in fields to evade Family Planning Officials;
- Family Planning Officials who broke three brooms over the head of an elderly man;
- Family Planning Officials who forced a grandmother and her brother to beat each other; and
- The use of quota systems and the practice of "implication" – the detention, fining and torture of the extended family of One Child Policy "violators."
The Chen Guangcheng report makes clear: the spirit of the Red Guards lives on in China's Family Planning death machine. WRWF released the names of the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity, so that they can be held accountable before the world.
Apparently, things have not improved in Linyi since 2005. Just last month, a woman in Linyi was forcibly aborted at nine months. A photo of her full term baby floating in the bucket in which it was drowned circulated widely on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, eliciting widespread outrage. In April 2011, Family Planning Officials stabbed a man to death when attempting to seize his sister for a forced sterilization. In October 2011, a woman, six months pregnant, died during a forced abortion in Lijing County, also in Shandong Province.
Chen may be safe for the moment, but the women for whom he risked everything are not. Forced abortion is not a choice. It is official government rape. Until women in China are free to exercise perhaps their most fundamental right -- the right to bear children -- the nation of China will not be free.
If A Blind Chinese Hero Can Fight Communists So Effectively as Obama Allows Economics Over Evil - We Can Too. And More.
This is what unfettered corruption in power brings. And don’t laugh that there are forces bringing this to the United States. PRAY for this saint and against tyranny everywhere.
